@jrezaian, the known #Iran apologist/lobbyist, just wrote a piece in The Washington Post against @HeshmatAlavi.

The reason is obvious. Heshmat debunked his articles & Jason never had an answer for his arguments.



There is no doubt that @jrezaian of the @WashingtonPost is an #Iran regime apologist/lobbyist.

Despite being jailed by this regime, Rezaian calls for the U.S. to actually trade with the mullahs!



It’s quite obvious where @jrezaian gets his talking points from:

None other than @JZarif, the foreign minister of #Iran’s regime.

@jrezaian actually believes freeing "Iran from the mullahs' tyranny" can be accomplished by opening "unrestricted commercial trade with Iran."

Meaning: A return to the Obama years and appeasing Tehran’s murderous mullahs.

@jrezaian calls for "economic engagement" with #Iran's regime.

What Jason won’t tell you is how Tehran spends such money.

@jrezaian calls for supporting "Iran’s private sector..."

What private sector? The mullahs have destroyed Iran’s “private sector.”

Let's take a close look at who control's #Iran's economy.


@jrezaian ridiculously blows his cover here, voicing his real concern (and that of #Iran's regime).

He wants Trump to be Obama and bow before Tehran’s regime.

It ain’t happening Jason.

@jrezaian also calls for "Altering bad behavior through prolonged commercial relations..."

And @jrezaian doesn’ care how #Iran spends that money: supporting terrorism.
Truly, why does @jrezaian, a former prisoner of #Iran’s regime, think it would actually be rational to collaborate with such ruthless mullahs?
He proves his Iran apologist nature by claiming Rouhani is “calling for greater freedoms for the people of Iran…”
Again, seriously?!
“Iran is a country of vast resources,” says @jrezaian, yet doesn't mention how #Iran’s rulers plunder this wealth for their own survival.

I, like many others, have strong suspicions about how @jrezaian was so conveniently released from Tehran’s prisons as part of Obama’s highly flawed 2015 nuclear deal with #Iran.

And after returning to the U.S., he began writing pro-Tehran articles in WaPo.


@jrezaian’s links with @NIACouncil (Iran’s known & disgraced DC-based lobby group), @tparsi & @jzarif are the nail in the coffin for me.


On @jrezaian’s time in #Iran as a “journalist”..
“Journalists” in Iran are most certainly cooperating with the regime, or else they’re kicked out.

A letter from Iran's Ministry of Intelligence & Security shows a permit issued for @ReutersIran before visiting the city of Qom.

And after spending time in Iran’s jails, why did you, @jrezaian, wait in line to vote for Rouhani?

Why did you legitimize this regime?

Why did you vote for those who jailed you?
I have explained why I consider @jrezaian is an apologist/lobbyist of Tehran’s mullahs.
Don’t fall for Rezaian spending time in Iran’s jails.
His release & reentry into the U.S. continues to serve the mullahs well.

Would Jason Rezaian ever respond to this comment in his “article”?!!!
